Well, it should be shown all information as "Copying", "From", "To",
but on the progress string it should show something like "Processed
65Kib at 65.5Kib/s" if there is speed information, or "Processed
65Kib" if there's no total size, and not speed information. The
delegate just show the information it has.

Yes, I think a bouncing progress bar is a good idea for an unknown
total size downloading job.
